Arrow "The Odyssey"

I think the force of my squee may have awoken the neighbors!

FELICITY! Felicity Felicity Felicity! I am so very, very excited that she is now on Team Hoodie! And ok, yes, I know she said she'll only in until they find Walter (and I kind of respect her for still having moral qualms about Oliver's vigilantism--I was a little surprised Diggle doesn't anymore, tbh) but I'm sure she'll get sucked in more and more, and I am so happy about that! Yay! I'm pretty sure I now like Oliver's team more than Oliver himself.

I thought I was going to be bored with the island parts, but it was actually a lot more interesting than I expected, and I'm just going to add Wilson to the list of shippy possibilities for Oliver. (Why does he have chemistry with every single other person on the show except Lauren? Oh, and speaking of Lauren, wow, is he ever a dunderhead for calling her or what? Now they can trace that number to her, so he just put her in danger. Though obviously she survived.

Part of why I thought I would be bored by the island bits is that it's obvious he wasn't going to get off the island and also obvious Wilson never made that air strike, so there wasn't as much suspense as there might otherwise have been--but I felt like they made up for that in character development for Oliver, for Wilson and for Yao Fei.

I can’t wait for Felicity to join the team and I hope she challenges him in ways that Diggle hasn’t. Also, I love that reveal about Diggle’s past and it makes me think that not only was testing Oliver’s self sense of privilege—and I think he gets now that Oliver is aware of his privilege in ways that he never was before the shipwreck—and testing Oliver’s sense of right and wrong, but he was also testing himself and his own sense of right and wrong. Which makes Moira interesting because both are right and both are wrong about her.

Back to Felicity, I hope she at least challenges him to come up with better cover stories and I loved that she called out not only Oliver but Diggle too.

If Wilson dies, I am going to spork a production team because I am already upset that they killed Billy Wintergreen without exploring the mess that that partnership was. But not as upset when they killed Deadshot. But I do think it means a lot that Wilson risked his only chance to get off the island to kill Billy and I hopw the show explores at least that.

Yeah, I was happy that Felicity called out them both too.

Do we know for sure it actually was Billy Wintergreen Wilson killed? I mean, he was wearing a mask at the time.

Right, there is a chance that wasn’t him at all that died. But—

Mostly, I think it was Wintergreen because that was some really strong body language that I’d never seen before from the masked man when Oliver called him out. That’s not a man going for a quick kill, or a joy in torturing; that is anger. Also, I like to think that Wilson and Billy knew each other well enough to recognize each other by their eyes alone—if that’s not slashy, then I dunno what is. ^_^ And Billy did call out to Slade just before they fought.
